Tom Stephenson in Antarctica

Our warblers are some of the most beautiful birds in the world. But their beautiful colors often blind birders to many of their most important ID points. This problem is compounded by the often brief and obstructed views we have in the field. Tom Stephenson will address many of these very important but often overlooked ID points such as overall contrast, subtle facial features, color impressions, feather edging, rump contrast, image patterns, foraging style, location, and behavior.

Tom Stephenson has been birding since he was a kid under the tutelage of Dr. Arthur Allen of Cornell University. His articles and photographs are in museums and many publications; he has lectured and guided many groups across the US and the world. His latest book, The Warbler Guide (Princeton University Press) recently won the National Outdoor Book Award. The Warbler Guide App, for iOS and Android, includes 3D rotating models and other helpful tools.
